Enjoy the entire 'main house' of our off-grid Applegate retreat-- complete with a full kitchen, modern bathroom, two bedrooms, and access to our beautiful creekside!

Our off-grid haven is three miles upstream from Applegate Lake in Southern Oregon-- search 'Applegate Lake' on google maps. Our property is along Elliot creek, surrounded by woodlands, with no actual house address as it's on a forest service road, beyond a 'road closed' sign and locked gate requiring a code (Don't worry, we will provide a map and all the details after booking!)

The main house features a cozy living room with a large fireplace, and a kitchen complete with a wood-fired stove, a propane oven, hot water, and medium size fridge. 

Go up the uniquely steep set of stairs to the two upstairs bedrooms with big windows and nature views. You get to the master bedroom, with king size bed, by walking thru the first bedroom, or use the metal staircase on the side of the house. 

The sound of the creek permeates around the property, along with a relaxing, meditative and peaceful tranquility. There are many small cabins and camping areas around the property- which are closed during the cold months-  a creekside fire pit, a geodesic dome greenhouse and garden, and the   this property is brimming with adventure and magical experiences !

Although we are off-grid, our property has most modern amenities. We have power from solar panels with reliable wifi, propane hot water for showers and dishes, and we have both an indoor flush toilet and an outdoor composting outhouse. 

The downstairs communal areas are shared by our respectful female caretaker, Jordan, who looks after our kitty, Pumpkin, and maintains the property while we are away. 

Jordan will provide you with detailed instructions on finding our property after you book, and she will either be there to greet you or leave instructions on where to find firewood and anything else you need. 

There is an original settlers home that is over 100 years old- called the Harlow Cabin- up the road from our land, and there is a national forest hike a short distance beyond the house. In the warmer months we have two pedal-boats that our visitors can arrange to bring to the lake, along with fishing, kayaking, swimming, and hiking around the lake. Please ask us for more info about these activities-- there is also a folder in the house containing detailed information !

We have certified (AMAZING) artisan well water available in all the spigots around the property, and guests are welcome to forage in the organic garden and walk the trails throughout the property during their stay. Please keep the garden gate closed at all times and pets are not allowed in the garden, please!!

The Land

Our property is filled with moss, ferns, mushrooms, flowers, endless blackberries, an organic garden, and fantastic swimming and fishing spots in the crystal clear waters of Elliot Creek.

We are hidden on gated road, surrounded by National Forest land, and just 5 minutes from Applegate Lake. We are 45min from Medford, the closest town being 30min to Ruch, Oregon. Upon booking we send an easy to follow map with the padlock gatecode. 

We live off-grid with solar electricity, outdoor solar shower, and a composting toilet available to hipcampers. 

There is no cell phone reception anywhere on the property, but we do have reliable wifi and use email and facebook messenger to stay in contact while out here.  

Our wifi is not suitable, though, for streaming or downloading.

We like to travel a lot- so sometimes you will be greeted by our land host, and other times left to stay on your own! But we will always be happy to give you a tour of the land and garden if we can! When we are here, we stay around the main house, and we also host occasional wwoofers and work/trade volunteers on the property. 

We are always available to give guidance to surrounding hikes, best fishing spots, ect!

Beautiful Elliott Creek is the headwaters of the Rogue River and runs through the property. It is ideal for water playing, floating, and fishing. Applegate Lake is only minutes away, but we are in a private, safe, quiet little community of 6 houses beyond a gate, surrounded by forest. 

The land also hosts unique cabins, geodesic domes, a treehouse, sauna/cabin, small orchard, and an organic garden- all thanks to Johan, who has loved and landscaped this property for over 10 years.

There are some amazing hikes from the property, including a couple National Forest trails that are in-accessable to the public due to the gate (which we will provide you with the 4 digit code to after booking!). Our roads also link up with the Pacific Crest Trail and Siskiyou Crest Trails near Bloomfield Pass.

Fires are only allowed in the large communal fire pit on the main property, but are strictly forbidden during peak fire danger season. Firewood is available for purchase upon request. 

Pets are welcome if they are well-behaved and friendly with other animals. 

Please let us know if you will be bringing any animals or pets!

The garden space is strictly off limits to animals, besides Pumpkin- the resident cat on the property. We have lots of wildlife in the area so we don't recommend letting your dog loose unless you are sure they won't chase, and of course find a shovel or dispose of pet waste on the property !

The Garden is open for guests to forage from and enjoy, but PLEASE no animals in the garden! Depending on the time of year there are all sorts of yummy things, but please do not eat anything unless you are 100% sure of what it is!

There is also an incredible 60ft. high tree house on the property which is off-limits to guests at this time.
